Story

This little ditty is to teach kids (and adults) to hear the beats in a song. It's quite mathematical as well! Clap along!

Lyrics

1, 2, 3, 4…

All Right. Groovy!

Feel the beat, and clap your hands

Keep the rhythm now that’s the plan

Start it off in 4/4 time

4 beats per measure Let’s clap together

Count out loud from 1 to 4

Let’s all clap, 1 2 3 4.  Clap the beats uh huh. Let’s get ready clap

1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4 that’s right, Clap the beats, oh yeah
